Anonymous, 24 Feb 2020LOL Oppo !!! Funny when I remember the $1000 Find X did not even had NFC. Oppo is really aggressive in marketing and pushing their retailers in 3rd tier cities. Plus they have a plethora of low-mid-range phones. And they also have sister brands that are doing very well, Vivo and Realme.
The Last Oracle, 24 Feb 2020You're confusing various types of HDR. Each group or company had it's own HDR standard based u... moreI'm not aware of any phone that can record HDR10 videos, as a matter of fact from what I know only Samsung and Sony can record HDR videos and they both use HLG format.
Theoretically they could do 8K HLG and overcome SD865 limitations by recording very high bitrate 4K HLG and then upscale it to 8K. That would kill the battery for sure or it would require additional dedicated chip on board (like X1 Ultimate) to manage the CPU load. It's a workaround for sure but from what I've seen on 8K TVs if you play UHD-Bluray it can upscale the image and keep high quality to 8K due to extra data available on the disc.
I don't think Xperia 1 has G Master, I think they've used some G that could be glass instead of plastic. Correct me if I'm wrong but anyway any Xperia flagship before Xperia 1 has used only plastic G lenses for sure
ian87w, 24 Feb 2020Sony was not competitive in branding (against Apple/Samsung) nor value (against Xiaomi/Oppo). ... moreThat's certainly not a good sales strategy and it will never bring any good profit for sure. I'd say it's rather a way to disaster.

Really good phones always easy to re-sell without loosing much. I don't like to waste $1k for a dinky phone every year even if I can afford it, you know. I understand that phone makers are trying their best to force us to do that but no, thanks!
Lol a Samsung camera sensor on sony device.
Syuser, 23 Feb 2020Amazing quality, best options! Trully like.no.other! Cheers Sony!XZ3 -> Android 10 update is soooo laggy and bad. Only 300-500mb free ram. Ram management is horrible. Sony quality! Yeah, right...
Sony has flag stick becouse of the lenght.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2020HDR in photo and video is very different stuff. HDR in video on phones comes as HLG only which... moreYou're confusing various types of HDR. Each group or company had it's own HDR standard based upon dynamic range and bit depth. Also, unfortunately Snapdragon 865 doesn't support 8k HDR, unless a manufacturer uses a special and extra ISPs, so Sony getting 8k HDR seems unlikely. Having having that, if you watch the Samsung 8k video, it looks like HDR, regardless of the fact that it actually isn't.
T Glass is only the lens coating, and will be better than the Sony G Master glass, but only by a little, and only for anti-flare. The G Master lenses probably resolve more detail than Zeiss.
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2020Xperia 1 had terrible battery life. Xperia 5 was better optimized. i did not "xperiance" the 5 but i had the 1 for a couple of months; i can attest to the fact that the 1 had terrible battery life. it probably is because of the display resolution, being 4k, while the 5 is only fhd. while the 5 did have good reviews about its battery endurance despite the mediocre capacity by 2019 standards.
VectorR, 24 Feb 2020I can agree with it. To my humble opinion, the only phone worth of full initial price is iPhon... moreThe iPhone is not worth for the all in one entertainment, yes it can play but definitely not the best one.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2020New xperia has all cameras 12MP. There is no 64MP to do 8K or digital zoom like Samsung. Well that's a gimmick!
A shame...was hopping for a new camera system and sensors...why not a 48mp or 64mp module? The rest of the phone is really nice
"The main unit will be the Samsung-made 64MP unit"
Not possible. If Sony uses a Samsung sensor, it would be ocntradicting itself about its sensor being superior to Samsung's sensors (whereas, infact, both their sensors are almost identical on quality).

If you want to experience the latest and greatest innovations, you pretty much need to get a new phone every year or two. At which point, resale becomes important.
You are trying so hard to be a contrarian, you’re invalidating your own statement.

Every time one of the "wumaos" point to Chinese OEMs other than Xiaomi as a cheap option, I disregard their opinion inmediately.
[deleted post]Sony staying in business just to upset you seems to be money well spent.
VectorR, 24 Feb 2020In my country most people buy iPhones or Samsung. Nobody's really interested in anything else.... moreThe fact you already plan to sell the phone before buying it shows the value. Resale just means people see the company as a fashion statement regardless of capabilities. I prefer the value of innovation
